(With apologies for duplication.)

There's still time to sign up!  Hawaiian shirts and shorts along the shores of beautiful Lake Mendota in Madison WI.

Join us in Madison at the Pyle Center on July 27th and 28th for WiLSWorld, the annual WiLS technology conference.  Registration is now open!  To see complete details and register, click here.

Our keynote speakers this year are Clifford Lynch and Joe Janes:

Clifford Lynch has been the Director of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) since July 1997. Prior to joining CNI, Lynch spent 18 years at the University of California Office of the President, the last ten as Director of Library Automation. Lynch, who holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley, is an adjunct professor at Berkeley's School of Information. He is a past president of the American Society for Information Science and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the National Information Standards Organization.

Joseph Janes is Associate Professor at the Information School of the University of Washington and Founding Director of the Internet Public Library. A frequent speaker in the US and abroad, he is the co-author of eight books on librarianship, technology, and their relationship, and writes the "Internet Librarian" column for American Libraries magazine. He holds the M.L.S. and Ph.D. from Syracuse University, and has taught at the University of Michigan, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the State University of New York at Albany as well as at Syracuse and Washington.

There are great breakout sessions on a number of topics:
--Cloud Computing, Including a Cloud-Based ILS
--Institutional Repositories
--Designing Mobile Learning Experiences
--Resource Discovery
--Engaging Patrons With EngagedPatrons
--OCLC Web Scale Management Services

There's something for everyone at WiLSWorld!  And don't forget the schmooze factor--a chance to get together with your colleagues in a casual, relaxed atmosphere.  There is the usual first-day reception and second-day member breakfast (that is open to all), both free to attendees.  And there are plenty of opportunities to chat at breaks and between sessions.

Join us!
